What's been cookin

I would like to introduce you to my lovely bunny pitcher that (according to the stamp on the bottom) was made in Italy. Mom thought it was lovely and HAD to get him for me last EAster. I can see the appeal - he's really quite handsome. Don't you think??

Before you form any opinions, perhaps I should show you another perspective. Bunny is a little too heavy and doesnt' quite pour right for water or juice of any kind...but gravy! Heck yeah! He makes one heckuva great gravy boat! :D Seeeee! (Bwhhaaaaaaaaaagh - *insert hurling noises here*)

I especially like how it dribbles off of his chin like that! Thanks Mom - He rawks!! :D I really do like him - gravy barfing aside...I do think, though, that I will retire him to a life of decorative means only. he he.

On another note...I've developed a love affair with eggs benedict! DH LOVES it, so I had to learn. Turns out - I have gotten quite good at arteries, however, are not amused!

I've made a couple more cakes recently, too.

1st was a bowling ball cake for Mom's frine Alonzo (not sure how to spell that - but he's as cool as his name :)

Mom thought the cake looked like a ghost...I couldn't disagree - but the bowlers loved it!! :)

Next on the list is a Thomas the Train cake. He was dairy free - and a ton of fun!

The next fun thing was so fun and so silly, I can't believe I hadn't tried it in the last 13ish years. Oldest kiddo was helping me make pizza (while I baked a cake) and wanted to make purple pizza dough. I think I shocked her when I said yes cuz the look on her face was priceless! :) I was out of purple, but we used blue was totally weird...but great too! :)

And that's all for now! :)
